Actually the "Republic of Boricua", the Jeffersonista government arising from the rebel movement described in Tropical Paradox, controls about 90% of the island. There are two "Loyalist" groups in the southeastern mountains, one pledging allegiance to the current government of Spain (Fanchonista) and one to the previous one (a Hohenzollern monarch, but equally neutral as regarded the UE versus Germany). There are sharp divisions within the Boricuans but these have not (yet!) emerged into violence. References to Spanish troops in A Paper Tiger Revealed were mistaken -- the BROWN defenders were Boricuan regulars.
